- Pass a fingerprint-based background check, including criminal history
- Pass a pre-certification training and exam
- Obtain a surety bond or liability insurance for at least $25,000
Using a certified server ensures that your case won’t be delayed, or in a worst-case scenario, dismissed due to improper service.

This course and exam cover all of the laws servers must know to serve process legally. Servers also work with this information every day, further cementing their knowledge of the subject.
Professional process servers with proven track records are more reliable than servers without experience or servers that can’t provide references. Reliability is incredibly important since service must occur on a certain timeline. If the server deviates from this timeline it could negatively impact your case.
